Taken: Exposing Global LGBTQ Human Trafficking

Topics: Access to Justice, LGBT Leadership, LGBTQ, On-Demand Webinars

The Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce OutLaws 2020, an eight-part thought leadership webinar series devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice. Our third installment addresses the global scourge of LGBTQ human trafficking.

In 2017, a ten-year study conducted by anti-slavery group Polaris of over 40,000 reported cases of alleged human trafficking revealed that LGBTQ youth made up a disproportionately high percentage of victims across the United States. Whether through in-person or remote encounters, LGBTQ minors experience myriad forms of force, fraud or coercion on a routine basis. Please join us for an important and timely conversation examining the ongoing plight of LGBTQ trafficking victims across the globe. Our presenters will address social and economic shortcomings contributing to this global epidemic and discuss how professionals and companies can work together to help stem the rising tide.
